Dr Pipes

I was hoping to find in youtube a video of the song in Arabic اورشليم من دهب and Syriac ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܢ ܕܗܒܐ or Urshalem men dahab (Arabic) dahaba (Syriac) as I have heard it from a Church choir a few years ago and it was just as amazing as in Hebrew by Ofra Haza I will continue to look for this great rendition

I guess now we can add the "accursed" Syriac speakers as well Arabic speaking Christians to his list

May the God of Israel bless the Jewish people

PS: I recall them using the word ܡܢ in Syriac and من in Arabic or Men for the Herbew word Shel
